Brett Deledio ($546,100, 117.23, 91) – Had a crappy game against Hawthorn about a month ago when he only scored 67 but we’ll forgive him for that because every other time he’s hit the park this year he’s raised his bat. And scored 100. Boom boom!
Note: I put the kiss of death on last week’s Premium Back Movers, Nathan Grima and Beau Waters. Grima scored 61 and Waters 86.
Pearce Hanley ($448,200, 91.85, -2) – Its not often you see a negative BE for a guy priced at $450k but 151 and 124 in the last 2 weeks that’s the situation Spud Hanley finds himself in. Those were his 5th and 6th tons for the year but before you go rushing to press the T to bring him in be aware that they follow a 55 and a 41. A high standard deviation (32.31) only means one thing – high variability of scores. I’d look for someone a little more consistent.
Grant Birchall ($472,500, 95.45, 92) – Just runs around the Hawks backline every week picking up his 25 possies and doing whatever the hell he wants. Averaging close to a 100 for his last 3, I reckon Birch is still really cheap – he’s only $9k above his 2012 floor price. Oh, and he’s facing GWS this week.
Corey Enright ($461,700, 92.42, 36) – Scored 123 against Port to go with the 123 he scored the week before against Sydney. If you’ve already got Carrazzo and are looking for a cheap backman, Corey’s a pretty good option. Might even get some forward time against Gold Coast on Sunday.
Andrew Carrazzo ($442,600, 94, 40) – Barring some unforeseen injury (God forebid), this will be Carrots’ lowest price for 2012 so if you’re going to climb aboard this is the week to do it. Since returning from injury he’s belted out a 132 and a 98 – all class.
Shannon Hurn ($471,700, 96.38, 62) – A pair of 113’s over the last fortnight and the lowest score our new stats guy Nath (keep up the great work, Nath!) has him down for between now and R22 is an 87. The problem is that he meets Hawthorn in R23 and against them in R4 this year he could only manage a 56.
Billie Smedts ($200,600, 45.25, -32) – He smashed out a 94. He smashed out a what? He smashed out a 94. I feel like one of the morons in those Jeep ads. That’s how jawdropping this score was. In only his 8th game for the year and with previous scores ranging from 3 to 60, Sir William of Smedtley went to town in the wet against Port to register 20 possessions and a goal. The beautiful thing was that I had him on the field in my team. And he helped me get over the top of Walesy in one of my leagues by 76 points. Joy.
Jackson Paine ($156,700, 47.25, -9) – Bucks is BRINGIN’ THA PAINE! Had a 78 on the weekend in only his 4th game.
Dylan Roberton ($231,300, 48, 3) – Here’s a cheeky one for you. Robbo is in his 3rd year in the league and whilst he’s yet to score a ton, he has got close a couple of times. On the weekend he put up an 87 against Collingwood in his 3rd game for the year. Keep an eye on him.
